Because Christmas is only days away (just four sleeps to go!) I’ve made this week’s #iwillwearwhatilike link up theme-free to keep things simple, and it’ll be the same next week as well. Then in January we’ll continue with the themes, which are optional as always. So come link up anything you’ve been wearing, scroll down for the details!
As I’m a little out of action where outfits are concerned due to my slipped disc, I’ve made up an outfit I’d like to be wearing on New Year’s Eve – I certainly won’t be wearing heels, that’s for sure! I’ve been lusting after all these pieces for ages, not least the sequinned t-shirt. It’s made of this “magic” fabric (earlier this year I tried on something similar so I assume it’s the same) where the sequins either disappear or totally change colour as you run your hand up and down it. Gotta get me one of these…!
The black skirt is floor length and makes me think Parisian chic, especially with those caged heels [she stares longingly into space]… Sorry, I just died and went to sartorial heaven briefly for a moment! I added the faux fur jacket because you need something elegant to keep you warm, and the short length works with the proportions of the maxi skirt.

Maybe I should just get this outfit and sit at home in it on New Year’s Eve – it’ll look even better accessorised with a walking stick 😉

Thank you for joining the #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist’s list of “inappropriate” items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
So link up all your fabulous outfits (or shoes, accessories, make-up, etc.) every Monday at 3pm UK time – it’ll stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only criteria is that you’re wearing whatever you damn well like!
